Of course I can do that! I made a bunch for her, and (if you're interested) you can too!

You can also make the scarf with 2 strands of worsted weight yarn:
While Kristy was here we got to talking about the other things that she was trying to get donations for too. Toothbrushes and toothpaste, deodorant, coats, hats, sleeping bags, and my personal favorite, hand warmers! Did you know that you can pick up a box of 40 pairs of hand warmers (80 total warmers!) for less than $20?! Each warmer provides 7 hours of warmth in a sleeping bag, and that might mean the difference between a miserable night, and a good one. It was too awesome, I had to get her a box!
If you're interested, THESE hand warmers at Walmart.com are cheap and can make a real difference in someone's life. You can send them to me at the address above, or you can even have them sent to the Westminster, CA store! Free shipping for you, and she'll be so happy to pick them up! You can ship them in care of Kristy Belton Bleau (you can leave a comment or shoot me an email so I can let her know to look for them!).
I hope I tell you all enough just how much your support and love means to me. I am so grateful for all of you lovely people who have become more than mere readers or followers, but true friends. I am sitting here getting all nostalgic and sappy (as this time of year tends to encourage), and just felt like I needed to say it. You are special, kind, wonderful, beautiful and perfect just exactly the way that you are. And I love you!
Yes, even you.
